This past Saturday we celebrated my Tio Lauro's 80th birthday with a little party.
He was born and raised in Rio Hondo, Texas.
He'll actually be spending the next 2 weeks down in the valley and attending the Festival in San Anto.
My Tio is one of the best accordionistas out there.  Polkas, redovas, schottises, huapangos, valses, and any Ramon Ayala, Cadetes, Cachorro!  You name it, he can play it!  A real classy guy.
I'm very lucky and honored to have him around.
My daughter Christina made him a special birthday cake, check it out.  Not only did it look great, it was also delicious.
Happy birthday Tio Lauro.

Tu sobrino -

I can most certainly attest to Don Lauros skills. A great honor to hear him play, class and feeling in his music. Congratulations y un caluroso salud de la familia Madrigal.

Hope to see you guys soon
-Jorge

Thank you all for the great comments.
Saludos to Gilbert, the1andonly, and to Jorge and la familia Madrigal.  Gracias.
My Tio is out in Rio Hondo for the next 2 weeks and will be going to San Antonio for the festival this weekend.  If anyone is interested in getting together with him please send me a PM or post a message and we can try and setup a meeting. 
He took his Dino Baffetti Fbe box.  That accordion was the Grand Prize at the 25th Annual Conjunto Festival and was won by Diane Jennings, John Jennings' wife from right here on the forum!  Its a great little box and has the engraving on the keyboard commemorating the festival.

Thanks again and Happy 80th Birthday to my Tio Lauro Guajardo!
Born May 13, 1934 in Rio Hondo, Texas.

Here's a little Youtube clip of him back a few years ago at the San Jose, Ca Biblioteca Reyes Gathering setup by Francisco 'Paco' Rios.

According to his latest update, a relative is supposed to pick him up today and they were expecting to be up in San Antonio by late afternoon.
Sorry but it looks like he's only going to be around San Antonio until this Sunday the 18th and then back in Rio Hondo until the 23rd when he flies back to California.

Hey Eddie - We actually live in the San Francisco Bay Area close to the SF Airport.  My Tio and my mom's family are from Rio Hondo and like to go and visit about once a year.
We'll usually go to the Mexican Tardeadas at La Peña here in Berkeley when we can.

Thanks-
Valentin
